We have a Hotpoint dishwasher model HDA200X--73BA. It has two little stubs of white plastic pipe poking out of the bottom of the dishwasher. (These two little pipe stubs are about one half inch in diameter and poke downward out of the bottom of the dishwasher for about a half inch.) During one of the cycles these little pipe stubs are emitting water onto the floor. First, water runs out of one for a few seconds. Then it stops, and it runs out of the other one for a few seconds. It looks like it is part of the cycle--like it is meant to happen. The only problem is that there is nothing to catch the water. It just runs onto the floor. I don't understand why it is doing this. If the water is supposed to come out of these little pipes, surely there would be somewhere for the water to go other than just running onto the floor. Please help me.

The problem is hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product to solve this problem once and for all. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that leave those spots. It is very affordable and even has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look with this product.
Check the drain hose stub connection at the disposal for plugging. Lots of material flying around in there which could block the stub pipe. You might consider inserting a short section of drain pipe that has a built-in stub into the regular sink drain and plug the disposal stub. Also check the screen at the bottom of the lower spray arm assembly for plugging. Clean the screen in a mixture of hot water/detergent/white vinegar for an hour or so. That will remove hard water deposits from the screen as well as any food debris. The draining process is a timed event, so it depends on fairly rapid removal of the water. Hope some of this helps!
The float most likely dirty. May be getting stuck in the down position (not telling the washer it is full). Look in the manual, it should be in the Trouble shooting section. No manual, look for it on the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher, should be 2" to 3" in diameter/plastic and move freely up and down and inch or so.
I would first check where the drain hose from the dishwasher connects to the drain stub under the sink. Remove the hose from under the sink and place it into a bucket. Close the dishwasher door and cancel the cycle to put the dishwasher in a drain cycle. Listen for the drain pump to activate. If water comes out of the hose check the stub where the hose connects under the sink with a screw driver to make sure the spout is clear of debris. If no water comes out of the hose, empty the dishwasher by hand using a plastic cup and when empty remove the hose at the pump under the dishwasher and check to see if there is any debris at this point. Make sure hose is clear from the dishwasher pump to the drain stub under the sink. You will need to place a towel or two on the floor as water left in the bottom of the dishwasher will come out when you remove the hoses. If still no water comes out you may have to disassemble the bump assembly. Not knowing what make and model you have I can't help you past this point.
I hope this is of some help.
wow, slow down. you should be looking for something simple. make sure your door lever is in the off position and or the timer at the off position for safety's sake. take bottom cover off. turn the fins on the motor counter clockwise. the seals in the motor pump assembly may be stuck. this is a very simple design washer. good luck.
I don't have any knowledge of your particular model but on mine the water condenses on the cold plate in the fridge compartment and then drips down into a little channel. From there it goes down through a fairly small tube which opens onto a little dish formed on the top of the compressor unit. This unit is warm when running, and the water is supposed to evaporate away into the room.
If water is collecting on the floor of the fridge compartment it is almost certainly due to a blocked drain pipe. If the drainage channel has become cracked this might be another cause of your problem.
One way to check that the drainage pipe is clear is to blow up it (not blow it up !) but that is a pretty yucky job. Alternatively you could pour a little hot water with dishwashing detergent dissolved in it into the drainage channel and check that it comes out onto the compressor top.
I hope this helps, but if not please defer a rating until we have had another think about it. Cheers, D.
Turned out there was a block on the clear short pipe that goes to a pressure sensor situated to the left at the front behind the front facia under the door which the engineer cleared by blowing it!! The pipe connects to a little stub that sticks out of the blue plastic flow control thing on the lhs of the dishwasher. U can access this by removing the lhs cover but not really necessary...
